Holiday Happiness Card for MFT Sketch 411

Hello Friends,

Hope you have been busy creating handmade cards and paper crafts. I have been away from this blog for a long time and somehow had lost the creativity mojo. But with Kathy's The daily marker challenge, I have felt revitalized. I have pulled out stamps that I have not literally used since I bought them and have been coloring them and creating cards. So, quite happy and excited. I absolutely love this hobby of mine and glad to be back at it.

Today, I created a card using Taylored Expressions Wings of Joy stamp for MFT Sketch Challenge 411. Sadly, while I do own quite a few MFT stamps, not any Christmas or Holiday stamps. I will rectify this situation soon.

I took some liberties with the sketch and used the hanging socks and mitten stamp from this set as the horizontal line that appears in the sketch. This is a very CAS card, but I just love how it turned out and this is the first time I have colored over a patterned paper and it was fun.

Seize the Sketch #21

Hi Friends, It has been a while since I posted. Sorry about that. I have been creating, but have not had time to post. :((

Here is a card that I did for Seize the Sketch #21. I loved the simplicity of the sketch. You can keep it as is or embellish it.

I kept is simple with this image from Belles N Whistles stamps. I was so sorry when they closed their store.

Here is the STS 21 Sketch,

I kept the card simple. Colored the image and added a doily in the background. :) A blank card that is good for any occasion.

Mojo Monday on a Friday

I just loved the Mojo Monday Sketch this week. It was clean and still elegant and it was easy to add the layers. It will be a good to go sketch.

Here is my card for the Mojo Monday Sketch #342.

I used took inspiration from the colors in the boot for my patterned paper. The stamp is a digital stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps. They have changed the website. I just cannot remember the new website. Sentiment is PTI.

Retro Sketches #111

Thursday Mojo was strong. I had very little time, but I got two cards done for Retro sketches. I was on a roll and very happy.  Even though the sketch looked like a square card, I opted to do regular size for ease of use.

Here are my two cards for Retro Sketches #111,

I created a tag using PTI tag die and then just added it to the card base. I just love this idea. When I have time I can create a bunch of tags that can be added to a gift bag, gift or even a card :))

For this 2nd card, I used this cute dog image from Inky Antics and then added a PTI Sentiment and also some buttons and cute dog pattern paper.

Hope you liked the cards...:)) Here is the retro Sketch #111,
